Chicago, IL - People around the country are making plans to travel to Saint Paul, Minnesota on Labor Day to march on the Republican National Convention. In Chicago, buses have been reserved and tickets are going on sale, reports Joe Iosbaker, a local anti-war activist who is helping to coordinate for the local Coalition to March on the RNC and Stop the War. “The chartered buses will leave Chicago at 3:00 a.m. on Sept. 1. We have to leave at that hour to be at the rally in Saint Paul at 11:00 a.m.”

For different groups in the coalition in Chicago, there will be varying plans in Saint Paul. For example, Teamsters Local 743 has a bus that will return the same day, while others will stay for more days of protests.

Contact the office of the Coalition to March on the RNC and Stop the War for information on transportation from your area. 612-379-3584.
